UBS AM builds model for quantifying greening of heavy industry

The asset manager's quant research arm, QED, has published a framework for valuing companies in industries like cement or steel that transition to more sustainable tech.

Imagine this world without concrete—no high-rise buildings, bridges, dams, football stadiums or highways. Concrete is the most widely used substance in the world besides water—literally essential to all life on earth. And yet cement, the main ingredient in concrete, is one of the most unsustainable industries there is, responsible for emitting 2.8 billion tons of carbon per year, about half of the emissions of the entire US.
